Node agent server settings
Use this page to view information about and configure a node agent. A node agent coordinates administrative requests and event notifications among servers on a machine. A node agent is the running server that represents a node in a Network Deployment environment.
To view this administrative console page, click...System Administraton | Node Agents | node_agent_name
A node agent must be started on each node in order for the deployment manager node to be able to collect and control servers configured on that node. If you use configuration synchronization support, a node agent coordinates with the deployment manager server to synchronize the node's configuration data with the master copy managed by the deployment manager.
You must initially start a node agent outside the administrative console.
The Runtime tab displays only when a node agent runs.
